On one of the many Battery
Threads…. CF ‘battery Guru… Rick did I think a 5 year test on a variety of known AGM’s and he reported that the Fullriver rated the best.
My own experience is very satisfactory.
I purchased 9 x Fullriver DC 260Ah-12 for Stargazer’s 24v system in Feb 2008.
Annual load and recharge tests each year confirms no degradation so far.
With a Puekerts rating of 1.18 …..recharging is efficient but perhaps it is because I have sized enough capacity to only use 10% SOC in 24hrs and the batteries get recharged in the 70 to 80% range, when on generator
, so that bulk rate recharges to 80% in less than 2 hrs on Gen time.
I found the company very easy to communicate and work
with on technical questions having recently ordered another 37 batteries for Superyacht projects,
and quality always excellent.
Depending on your location, if you are able to order directly with Fullriver expect to pay about USD 370 to 380.00 FOB each for the DC260-12 AGM
based on material costs (Lead) at the time of order.
Hope this helps
